Hockey fans are bracing themselves for the exciting NHL 15 release date later this year, with EA now releasing the first official information on the game, including the NHL 15 cover vote and the very first NHL 15 debut trailer.
Remember that this is a very big deal, being the first next-gen hockey game to arrive on the Xbox One and PS4. The game will also be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 but something tells us that you’ll want to pick up next-gen versions for the best experience overall.
As we wait for further details on the game to come at E3 2014, we switch our attention to the NHL 15 cover star vote. Fans now have the opportunity to cast their vote on who they want to see grace the cover, with candidates locked down to Erik Karlsson , Logan Couture, T.J Oshie, P.K Subban, Drew Doughty, Phil Kessel, Matt Duchene and Patrice Bergeron
To participate in the vote, simply Tweet or Instagram a message which includes a hashtag with the cover star’s surname. So for example if you want to see Patrice Bergeron on the cover of NHL 15, you’ll need to include the hashtag #NHL15Bergeron in your message.
It’s important to note that EA has said that double votes will be available every Thursday, counting as two votes for the chosen player in question, so remember that.
